three years. These 17 states represent approximately 58 percent of the nation's total population.

The study finds that the rate of "patient-choice" C-sections varies widely from state to state. Arizona had the smallest increase, with 15.7 percent, while Nevada had the largest increase of 56.7 percent. As in past HealthGrades studies, Florida, New York and New Jersey had the highest rates of "patient-choice" C-sections in the latest year studied, 2003. The rates and percentage increase of the rate from 2001 to 2003 are in the following table:
